Marriage is a journey. But like any journey, it’s easy to lose your way.  Journey to Us is a 2 1/2 day experience designed to help couples find their way back to a marriage that feels like the safest place on earth.  

Graeme and Alison talk about the struggles they’ve faced as a married couple and then share the practical, Bible-based tools they regularly use to keep their marriage on track. Couples leave with practical tips and action steps they can use to strengthen their marriage and encourage other couples.
